I've posted before that I thought that Doris Day was pretty unappreciated as a singer because her acting career often overshadowed her singing and--because of her "wholesome" movie image--she tended to sing a lot of "happy" tunes that themselves often lacked emotional depth. When Doris sang best, though, was when she tackled the sad romantic ballad. In those, her combination of vocal purity and sensuality melded into an irresistible combination. One of her best was Johnny Mercer's "I Remember You." Few would argue that Johnny Mercer was one of America's greatest lyricists and, for this tune, the lyric he wrote was deeply personal. Mercer wrote it after the breakup of his illicit love affair with Judy Garland--an affair that neither Garland or Mercer reportedly ever really got over. Here, Doris Day very successfully captures Mercer's emotion in that lyric. Great romantic song, great lyric, great singer.
